Stopped by yesterday. Orders a diet soda and roast beef sandwich. Wife ordered sandwich and potato salad. First off the waitress was uninterested and cold. Normally when ordering a Diet Coke and don't serve it you are told. I received a cola from a local company that was very flat and bland. The sandwich as mostly gristle, very hard to... More

We tried the roast beef on weck which was tender slices of beef dipped in tasty smooth gravy served on a weck which is German style hard roll sprinkled with salt and caraway seeds.... More

This was my first time here and I was impressed. The service was exceptional. I had the beef on weck with picked beets and fresh German potato salad. Potato salad and beets were packed with flavor and perfectly prepared. The beef on weck was easily the best I've ever had, and being from western New York I have had many.... More

This was on our must hit list for the Beef on Weck and what a perfect place. Established in the late 1800's the original burned down but this is truly a Buffalo must see. The Beef on Weck was served with hit German Potato Salad and Pickled Beets but if you are there from Columbus Day thru end of St... More

This place is Buffalo tradition. This is one of the best places for beef on weck. The gravy is very good too. My go to order here is beef on weck with side of crinkle fries and gravy on the side. I put the gravy on my sandwich and dip my fries in it. Try the draft birch beer. Service... More

I grew up in the Buffalo area and though I haven't lived there for over 45 years, I always make a point of eating at Schwabl's whenever I'm back...which will happen again this May! Their roast beef-on-wick sandwiches are big and delicious. If you like horse radish, as I do, it adds an extra zing to it. The crinkle French... More

My wife and I went for dinner to Schwalb's for the first time since a vehicle crash into the building. We sat in the dining room near the carving station and bar, and while the seating is tight we were comfortable. We ordered Beef on Weck, fries, German Potato Salad, and Seafood Bisque. We both enjoyed the beef and I... More

Three of us girls went for lunch. Roast beef sandwiches and pop in the smallest glasses I have ever seen. Too many other excellent restaurants in the area to go to. Heard so much about Schwabl's, and we were so very disappointed with the quantity that you get for your money.

I've only had the Beef on Weck there but it is delicious and a very large sandwich. Cost was about $10.00 but you get what you pay for.

I don't understand some of the negative comments about Schwab's. The sevice was excellent. Kristen our server did not rush us one bit! We finished our cocktail before she took our order which was per our request. The cocktails were excellent and not watered down with too much ice! We both had the Beef on Weck with German potato salad... More
